  1. Have I messed up my edges?

    Boards
    Hello all! So I've had the Rossi One Mag for about a season, and maintained the board every 2 trips (basically every 2 weeks). I did waxing as well as light edge tuning but without checking with Rossi, was doing a 0 degree edge. I just reached out to them and found out that the factory does a...
  2. Fixing Broken Edge

    Boards
    Original Snowboarding Forum Post: Missing Edge Repair So I didn't buy a new board on Black Friday but instead I fixed my old one. Many people on this website told me to get a new one and that my favorite board was junk. I couldn't let her die so easy plus I need to save up if I wanna get a...
  3. Missing Edge and Base Repair

    Boards
    At the end of last season I did damage to my board in the glades. The damage was done beneath the toe of my rear binding (I ride regular). You can see in the pictures that a piece of edge is missing (about 3-5 inches long) as well as about half nickle into the board of base removed. I have...
  4. Help With Repair

    Tips, Tricks And Snowboard Coaching
    Hi everyone, I'm new to any sort of board maintenance but not afraid to start. My board, as you can see in the pictures, needs some repair. I've tried looking online and it looks like my first instincts for the de-laminated part were right, just some epoxy and clamps should do fine. As for the...

    Boards
    I bent my edge on my snowboard and could use some tips on how to fix and seal it. I already hammered it back into place as much as I could.

  7. Burton Seven

    Boards
    So yesterday while driving down the road I came across someone throwing away their old Burton Seven board. It is the 155cm from 2006. There was some base damage which I easily patched up with a bit of p-tex, and in addition there was a piece of the edge missing. I have already invested 23...

    Boards
    I noticed a little crack today in the tail of my Ride Fleetwood board :( It's not very long (yet) but I'm afraid it could get longer :unsure: It's on the top laminate layer of the board and extends a few millimeters in. I want to repair it since I've heard cracks like this can let water into...
  11. Edge tuning woes

    Boards
    Hey guys, Tuning newbie here. I have a pretty new Burton Custom Flying-V. I took it out once so far, but it was pretty rocky and my edge got a lot of burs. I picked up a Dakine side edge filer, since conditions are still pretty icy in Tahoe and I wanted to keep the edges nice and sharp...

  13. Gnu Billy Goat or.....?

    Boards
    OKay so I have had my eyes one the 2014 billy goat. Thing is I don't like this tucked in edge bull crap. A fully wrapped edge seems a lot more sturdy. Although my K2 is fairly dinged up. I have a sale coming up this weekend and I want to know opinions. BG? or another board similar for and all...
  14. My board can't hold an edge.

    Boards
    I have come to the realization that my all-mountain board can't hold an edge. It makes me an unstable rider, and I'm not quite sure what to do about it. I am riding a '09/10 GNU B-Pro. Now, I know that is old but I first noticed this the second season I had it, when I switched boards with a...
